Obama campaign tries
to hide call for 'revenge'

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:whiskey, 11/4/2012 11:33:10 PM

Team Obama’s campaign manager is trying to muffle the political impact of President Barack Obama’s call for ballot-box “revenge” by claiming that Gov. Mitt Romney is himself touting revenge. “The Romney campaign’s message today is revenge, ours is the President’s plan for the middle class,” campaign manager Jim Messina tweeted Sunday morning. “I’ll take that contrast any day.” The spin follows Romney’s rapid effort to highlight Obama’s startling Nov. 2 call for revenge on Election Day. “Don’t boo, vote! Vote! Voting is the best revenge,” Obama said Friday at a rally

Comments:
Nice to know that we have people to tell us we didn't hear the words we heard Obama say, but what we heard was what was said in the words Obama didn't say.

Well it makes as much sense as Mr Messina.

The Determination ad is a joke. Messina has been in full melt down for a few days. Yesterday he tweeted Romney couldn't win NC.

Obama knows he lost so he's already seeking revenge. A truly dangerous man and a truly dangerous situation.

I'm surprised there is any one of his minions with the guts to tell this little weasel anything bad. Like the video of Hitler in the bunker with all his people quaking in their boots because everything has turned to poop..... Oh to be a fly on the wall.....

If Obama loses I predict he will take out his revenge on the American people as well as the incoming administration - if you thought he wrote a whole lot of Executive Orders in the last few years just wait until the last 2 months of his term. He will use a wrecking ball on the economy.

Ordinarily I try to keep words like "hate" and "despise" for a person's actions, rather than the person himself. In most cases, I feel that "hate" is too emotional and makes us irrational when we need to stay calm and rational.

But I'm as close to despising Obama the person and his synchophants as I ever have been about anyone in my life. My contempt for them, meanwhile, is off the charts.

The President's plan for the middle class...I wonder what that is. More of the same? Decreased wages; more job loss; higher taxes; more freedom lost; more regulation to stifle and kill the economy off?

Revenge is a word used in Marxism as a way of exciting the masses. It was not a mis spoken word, rather a word chosen by speech writers. The walking back the speech is the just covering the crowd not getting the message...

Revenge = social justice. Social justice is punishing somebody because of what somebody else did. That is what this has been about all along.

The real revenge is going to come after the election. I predict that this will not be over tomorrow night. Even if Romney wins in a landslide, the Obamas are not going away quietly. He is now using code words in his speeches to gin up the armies of morons who support him. Conservatives watch your backs.

#7 - I know of at least one conservative legal foundation (Mark Levin's Landmark) that is already watching every move the Obama Admin makes, and whether Obama loses or not, they are preparing to go to court on anything he does (or his agencies like EPA) that isn't constitutional. I have faith in Levin and Landmark, and I trust there are other legal groups out there ready and willing to do likewise to protect us and our country.

#9 - Your words are exactly my own thoughts. And I don't like feeling this way.

#12, 13, 14 - I agree completely with all of you. Obama has been using marxist language much more openly and freely these last few months. His motto ''Forward'' is right out of marxist propaganda as well. It's always an us-vs-them, make-them-pay mentality. If you listen to how he says it, this particular instance (and Fox plays it often enough), you realize he knew exactly what he was doing. He didn't make this remark off-the-cuff.... it was planned. He knew his crowd would boo when he said Romney's name, and in fact he waits for it. Then they do, and he has his opening for this revenge comment.

Comment, heck. It was a command. He IS using code words - dog whistles, in libspeak - to gin up his supporters (and that old people ad is another indication of this) to become surly and violent if he loses. He doesn't want them to take revenge on anyone for their own sake ... he's instructing them to get revenge for HIS sake.

And for Messina to twist his guy's words into a sin Mitt Romney is committing ... well, first its just SOP for them, but it's truly vile.

Fortunately for Dear Leader(US) and his minions, he didn't have to work real hard at hiding his call for "revenge."

His willing servants, also known as RAT infested media whores, were happy to lose any reference to The Anointed One's use of the word in their newspaper articles this morning. All my fishwrap would cover on the Presidential election this morning was a rehash of every stinkin' poll that exists.

You know, boys and girls, I remember a time when the stories in the papers and television were concerning incidental stuff like ISSUES and CANDIDATES' PROPOSALS, not that the Dipsy-Doodle Poll Company found that among redhaired food stamp recipients, Obama led 55-45.

Actually, I'm looking forward to his Hitler-in-the-bunker "last days in the White House". The petulant snarks. The removal of all the Rs from the typewriters. The preemptive pardons of himself and Holder. The shoeless bowing on the Oval Office rug to Mecca.

The moving vans will come and go, but it will be a while before the stench dissipates.

Revenge has been Obama's goal since he was old enough to swallow the anti-American rhetoric coming from the Rev. Wright, Ayers, the writings of Saul Alinsky and Marx and the worlviews of Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, Michelle Obama and the rest of the Marxist cadre of czars who want to cut America down to size.

He wants revenge for slavery, for British colonialism, for perceived American oppression of the poor here and overseas and for capitalism in general.

...reveals hostile and divisive impulses.

Everything Obama has done has been both hostile and divisive, beginning with ramming thru Obamacare against the will of (white) people. Toss in his "redistribution of wealth" and his warning to kill the coal industries, too.

His elimination of the work requirement for welfare is just another example of hostility toward white people and to American ingenuity and self-reliance in general.

Mr. Obama is a walking, b-s'ing cauldron of hostility and revenge. This latest comment is simply another piece of his mask coming off for liberals to see.

The rest of us have seen it all along.

To 13 and 15, both very succinct.

All you have to do is watch him when he says it. Oh yes, he planned it, waited for it, and relished it rather deliciously when his plan for attack worked. His smug satisfaction was written all over his face, right along with the true intent behind his words.

Once you understand what this person is about, his face becomes like an open book. He should never play poker with anyone who really knows him.

This alone makes it impossible to stomach watching him as he spews his filth and lies to the public, he literally nauseates me when I see him speak.

If Obama gets voted out, the media isn't going away. They will be the ones to help get the revenge. The media is never going away and they are never going to change. Each year they get worse and still a huge majority tune in to them and see none of the bias.

Revenge, you bet we will see revenge and the unions, media, Hollywood, Occupy will never let up on President Romney. Harry Reid has already stated he won't work with Romney.

The few months after November 7th are going to be a very dangerous time in this country. Plan accordingly. I am not an alarmist but a realist and when groups of irrational people say they are going to riot, I listen. Obama would love nothing more than to further divide this nation. He wants us weak, angry and in a state of chaos. He is like a petulant child with a toy. He would rather break it, than share it.

The word "Forward" does not mean anything by itself. Just assume you are standing at the edge of a swamp. Forward!
You have to use this word with something else - for instance, "Forward to the victory of communism!". It looks like Obama did not get good grades in his marxsist school neither. But he learn the word "revenge" well. So, we will try to remind him of our desire to revenge him tomorrow.

Ditto's to #22.
The 'revenge' plea is aimed at the community-organized ones, suggesting that rioting and ripping America apart is their right. I expect that union thugs and ACORN militants will attempt to start a war within, as they have been 'organized' to do.

Some are claiming BHO knows he has lost. I disagree. He will not believe it when/if it happens tomorrow. He is so in love with himself he cannot see it. He probably believes an executive order will keep him on for a few more years. I can see him encouraging his followers to protest and riot. Liberals have a degenerative mental state full of hate and envy and see social injustice in everything where none exists.

I've wondered about this "revenge" comment. Freudian slip? Or just connecting with his base? Revenge for what? Unemployment? And whose fault is that? Romney's? Poor living conditions? I lived in the inner city when I was first married. I worked hard, stayed off drugs, and got out of there. Revenge for slavery? Far as I can remember - I had nothing to with that - and neither did anyone living today. In fact, my ancestors fought, and yes, even died, to end slavery, so revenge for what? Far as I can see, Obama is pandering to a spirit of victimization far more destructive than any real or imagined wrongs from the past.

I haven't read all of the Ldotter comments yet, and I apologize if someone else has referenced The Ulsterman Report from the Nov. 1 article entitled: Valerie Jarret – “After We Win This Election, It’s Our Turn. Payback Time.” (WSI)

We must vote out Obama, this unconstitutional usurper, He and those who surround him are pure, unadulterated Evil. If traditional Democrats want to save their party, which is doubtful, they will purge themselves of the George Soros-backed Marxists. Democrats like to have their Jefferson-Jackson Day dinners, but J & J are probably rolling over in their graves at what has been done to their party.

Dinesh D’Souza's movie proves true. We know what the 'revenge' is all about.

BTW: I stumbled across a report where D'Souza was forced to resign his post at King's College due to a 'timely' scandal. Somehow I had missed that one. The pattern continues. Nixon's "enemies list" pales in comparison. NerØbama is all about revenge.

AS a typical propagandist, Jim Messina is trying to flip the damage to the opponent by simply declaring it was not Øbama who said it, but Romney! And then, simply and very quickly move to other topics in the hope no one will actually call him on the big lie. They also excuse it as mere "rhetorical" enthusiasm in the heat of campaigning. No one held accountable, and damage control on 24/7 alert. They have absolutely NO respect for the intelligence of voters or anyone who lives under the "We know better what's good for you than you do" administration all-powerful rule.

How in the world can we possibly take four more years of this man???? I hope and pray that God is merciful enough to this country, that He will let Romney win, so we won't have to listen to Obama blame Bush and every one else for all his dumb things that he has done and will do. And we would not have to hear all the dumb thing from the dumb vice president. I don't see how they got elected the first time, much less AGAIN......

The Riddle of the "angel Priest"
Daily Mail, by James Nye    Original Article
Posted By: Whiskey- 8/9/2013 12:56:16 AM     Post Reply
Pinned inside her mangled Mercedes, seriously injured and fading fast, Katie Lentz turned to her rescuers on the lonely open stretch of Missouri highway and asked them to pray. Struck head-on by a drunk driver on Sunday morning, emergency workers had been battling for an hour and a half to free Lentz, but to no avail. But as they joined hands a Catholic priest appeared, even though there were no bystanders and the road was blocked, who offered a prayer and an instruction to the rescuers that they would now be able to free her.

While Barack Obama abandoned the campaign trail earlier this week and retreated to Washington to oversee the storm-relief effort (doubtless hoping to persuade wavering voters of his leadership qualities in the process), the man who could blow him out of office next Tuesday knew exactly where he needed to be. For more than a month now, Mitt Romney has been virtually encamped in Ohio, the too-close-to-call ‘swing-state’ that history decrees he must win if he is to reach the White House.

NBC was the most-watched network for the final presidential debate last night with 12.391 million viewers tuning in. ABC was next with 11.730 million, according to Nielsen Fast National numbers.

Fox News Channel won the race during the vice presidential debate this week -- the ratings race. Fox brought in more than twice as many viewers as MSNBC and CNN separately, therefore beating the two networks combined. Not only that, but Fox even drew more viewers than each of the big three networks individually.

As Joe Biden and Paul Ryan tore into each other over chewy topics like Iran and tax during last night's TV debate, there was only one subject preoccupying tens of thousands of viewers - the Vice President's glaring toothy grin. Within minutes of the debate starting, Twitter was abuzz with users taken aback by Biden's behaviour and sent out mocking messages. One parodied his a trademark soundbite: 'For those brief moments you don't see a #BidenSmirk on my face, know that I've got a #BidenSmirk in my heart.'

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
